odern design has shown remarkable
resilience, even as it has endured the
ever-fickle style enthusiasms of the
American homeowner. Although its exact “birth” date is often
debated, the first forms, materials, and general of modern
design aesthetic started to filter into homes in the late 1920s
Many of those classic accents, including lighting, have
endured—take the George Nelson Bubble lamp, for example,
which first appeared in 1952. Still others, however, take the
original ethos of modern design and adapt it not only for
today’s homes, but for those ever-changing homeowners.
The results may harken to a slightly retro vibe, but the
lights and their adaptability are resolutely a modern-day
interpretation of contemporary design.
